YouTube dad blogger LadBaby has revealed it's a "Christmas miracle" after bagging the Christmas number one single for the second year running.

The internet star and father-of-two - real name Mark Hoyle, 32, is the unlikeliest of stars.

He's gone and beat chart-topping rapper Stormzy, Scottish singer Lewis Capaldi and pop princess Dua Lipa with his charity single I Love Sausage Rolls.

The song is a twist on Joan Jett's I Love Rock 'n' Roll hit and follows his 2018 Christmas number one We Built This City, an ode to sausage rolls based on Starship's 1980s glam-rock song.

Figures from the Official Charts Company show I Love Sausage Rolls scored 93,000 sales over the past week, selling 18,000 copies more than his 2018 release.

An overwhelmed LadBaby told OfficialCharts.com: "How have we done this again? It's the best feeling in the world - it's a Christmas miracle yet again!

"Thank you everybody for supporting us once again, and all for an amazing cause.

"It's going to the Trussell Trust - to the 14 million people living in poverty in the UK. Who doesn't love a sausage roll at Christmas?"

Chief executive of the Official Charts Company Martin Talbot said: "Congratulations to Ladbaby. It is a superb achievement to score an official Christmas number one once, let alone twice in successive years.

"And to do so with increased sales year on year is quite phenomenal - and all for a fantastic cause."

The vlogger's success means he is the first artist to score consecutive Christmas number ones in more than 20 years.

LadBaby is a YouTube star from Nottingham

The Spice Girls were the last to achieve this, scoring three in a row in 1996 to 1998 with their hits 2 Become 1, Too Much and Goodbye.

All proceeds for the hilarious song will go to food bank charity The Trussell Trust for the second year running.

The Nottingham-born YouTube star had been able to translate his online success into sales.
